I am throwing out this suggestion in another form to see what people think.

Thanks for staying active in this topic. 

Christian says that there is a Calendar module on the main website that
could be used for LibreOffice Events calendar.

I did create a page and added the upcoming events from the wikipage here: (not
published, thus only accessible when logged in.

Could you post a screenshot or something similar?

Most of the marketing people don't have write access to the website and thus
can't see how it looks like.

Due to SSL certificate restrictions I can't login either.

The events are of announcement-style, i.e. those that don't have a
dedicated page on the website itself.

If the calendar is used, we could then also put in the release party events
on the same calendar and hopefully, the calendar could do groups search and
we could pull release date events on a page report if we needed one and the
same for LibreOffice events.

Currently, no grouping is done, but it's possible to expand its possibilities.

How does this sound? Would people be in favour of the change and move all of
these events to a website based calendar.

Nobody has an opinion on this it seems :-))

Not really, just not enough time to comment all interesting topics...

And as you seem to handle this topic quite well, there seemed to be no urgent 
need to step in...

The main point is:

We should use the calender being the easiest to work with.

In my eyes this contains on the input side:
- adding of events by everybody (even without login)
- approval of added events to avoid spam/scam etc
- categorizing
- keep previous events for next year planning

On the output/visitor side:
- browsing and searching by time, category and name
- combined view of categories (or multiple categories like "german" and "linux")
- links to relevant web pages from singe entries


Hi Christian:

Thanks for the events calendar on the website. Yes, there does seem to 
be quite some lack of interest on this topic, although, I think it is a 
good marketing tool that we should consider.



Of the two methods, I would prefer the Website hosted calendar. It is 
more accessible to the visitors to the site and more public that the 
wiki pages.

Best regards
